    Re: Let's see your cage Pictures please.

    I swept it daily and I changed the fleece once a week. Sweeping took about 30 minutes and changing the fleece and scrubbing the coro and restocking hay bins and water bottles about 60-70 minutes. It housed 6-10 guinea pigs at various times as that was a terrible city where people threatened to feed the guinea pigs to their dogs or throw them in a dumpster. There were so many free guinea pigs that guinea pigs with health or behavioural issues were difficult to rehome. So I took them in. Until I had my (now ex) husband arrested for throwing our 15 month old son, 3 year old son, and punching me. I live in a much smaller apt now and had to rehome the nicer pigs and 3 passed from a mysterious illness. It was a hard spring, summer and fall for my family that year. But that was almost 2 years ago now. Things are a little better...

    Re: Let's see your cage Pictures please.

    Here is my cage today! I expanded it to a 3x5 and bought these cute little bins to use at litter boxes/kitchens. I plan on adopting a fourth piggy when the right one becomes available so I wanted to make sure my cage is big enough Sorry about the messy fleece, when I moved the hay racks hay went everywhere. Thankfully, tomorrow is piggy laundry day.

    Where did you find the little bins for litter boxes? That looks like what I'm looking for...

    And I love the fleece tunnel/tent you have - that's an awesome idea!

    @schavarry I got them at Dollar Tree! The work perfectly!

    They love the tunnels as well. I took their fleece forest down so that I could do 3 hay racks reused them like this

    I know this was not a question for me but I do have some input about a lid. We have a 2x5 with a lid. We actually bought the cage and lid from Guinea Pig Cages, Care, Shelters, Veterinarians - Guinea Pig Zone . The lid is made from 18 grids zip tied together with an expandable pole running through the middle so you can fold it over on itself or raise it up completely along the back of the cage. If you go to that sight you can see very well how they make it and what to use. We also have a support bar going across the cage for when out cats get on it. Here's a pic:

    Re: Let's see your cage Pictures please.

    I know I posted my cage a while back but I wanted to put another one up cause we made some changes.

    We added pet beds to the top instead of pillows for our cats.

    We took the corner potty out just because of having to clean it constantly and the pigs were getting dirty from it. You can see Elvis (the black one) and Ozzy (the white and brown one).

    And this is my favorite addition: Fleece Forests!! I loved making these. The big one in the front corner is portable for when they have floor time in the other room. Ozzy is making another appearance.

    I missed the shoe rack until you said something about it, I might have to do that when I change up my cage!! Cool idea Idrew7

    Re: Let's see your cage Pictures please.

    We took a long time to figure out what we were going to put under it to raise it up. We thought about a table but that would have been too high and then we saw these online and went to our Lowes and bought 4 of them. They were the perfect size. When we expanded the cage we only had to get one more, so it's 5 all together.

    I love that you covered up the ramp! I'm sure the piggies like that too! And using the extra scraps for the mini forest is awesome - I hope your piggies love it, it looks like you did an awesome job!! One word of warning... be sure to check the stuffed animals eyes regularly to be sure they aren't gnawing on them (it sounds like they've had it for a while so this shouldn't be an issue but you don't want them eating the plastic)
